We can’t wait to welcome pioneering Scottish musician Mairi Campbell to Knockengorroch!
An established member of Scotland’s traditional music scene, Mairi pushes boundaries with her use of free improvisation, songs and stagecraft. As an interpreter of Scots song, Mairi has contributed a significant number of songs to its current canon.
After studying classical viola at the Guildhall School of Music, her musical questing has taken her to folk song, traditional fiddle, composition, song-writing and improvised sounding to her present creative place which blends and transcends the skills she has acquired in all of these areas.
A performance by Mairi Campbell today takes her listeners on a journey with waypoints that include her own and a careful selection of others’ songs (with audience participation), improvised vocal and viola, Scottish dance tunes, and passages of Bach.
